1 FIFA 270 million people active in football There are now 265 million footballers (male and female) worldwide and 270 million people are actively involved in football if referees and officials are included. These are the significant main results of a survey conducted by FIFA with the help of its 207 member associations. The figures represent a 10% increase on the first survey that used the same criteria in the year The number of registered players has increased by over 50% in the women s game alone. The key findings from the study are: The overall total 265 million players is almost 10% higher than the number recorded six years ago (242 million). 26 million (or nearly 10%) of these players are women. Referees and officials bring the total number of people directly involved in football to 270 million. This means that around 4% of the world s population (or 1 in 25 people) are directly involved with football. The number of registered footballers (38 million) has increased by nearly a quarter (23%) on the same figure from the year 2000 (30 million). The growth in women s football is particularly striking. The number of registered female players (at youth and senior level) has increased by 54% to 4.1 million. In the men s game, the number has increased by 21% to 34.2 million. The number of unregistered occasional players, which was first recorded in the previous Big Count study, has increased by 7% to 226 million. When added together, there are already over one million futsal and beach soccer players (male and female). In terms of regional differences, Asia (85 million footballers) holds a clear advantage over the other five confederations (Europe: 62 million; Africa: 46 million; North, Central America and the Caribbean: 43 million; South America: 27 million; Oceania: 0.5 million). However, if the share of footballers in the total population is taken into account, North, Central America and the Caribbean, South America and Europe are all ahead of the other confederations with a population share of over 7% each. The number of clubs (301,000) is similar to the figure recorded in Conversely, the total number of teams (1.7 million) represents an increase of approximately 200,000 teams (i.e. an average of nearly six teams per club). The apparent decrease in the number of professional footballers (110,000) can be attributed to the improvements made in the method of collating data. The data for Big Count 2006 was collated in the first half of 2006 via the standard practice of a questionnaire as well as an online tool. The response rate was over 75%. FIFA used Big Count 2000, a UEFA survey from 2005 and other internal analyses to supplement missing data from associations and for plausibility purposes. The study was scientifically observed by Lamprecht & Stamm SFB AG, a social research company based in Zurich.
